I made an error and dodged this book when it was first being promoted. I'd assumed that any humorous book in which the hero is a neuroatypical man would source its laughter at his expense. I should have had more faith. What Graeme Simsion has managed to achieve is a perfectly formed RomCom which ...

I’d been meaning to read this novel for a while so I was glad we read it for book club. As a whole, I enjoy this novel. I found myself laughing throughout the novel and I was totally absorbed into Don’s Father Project. I thought the idea of their original projects were a bit odd and I was glad that ...

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-CycleThis is a hard one for me to rate. There were things I liked and things I didn't like. I didn't know anything about this book going into it. I have seen the cover and heard the title in various bookish escapades, but never read the summary. I saw a cop...

When I began it, I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book or not, as the narration was heavy with lots of 'telling'.

“Restaurants are minefields for the socially inept” Like I mentioned in the title of this review,The Rosie Project is what Sheldon's diary would be if he had fallen in love with a woman that was the complete opposite of him. It's quirky,funny and often endearing. The exact type of read I would ...

Around the Year Reading Challenge Item #39: A book set in a place you'd like to visitAfter discussing some of the book's flaws with my book club last week, I realize I may have been a bit generous in awarding it the elusive five stars. But despite its weaknesses, while I was reading this book I did ...

I'm hitting another block when trying to talk about the last few books I've read, because here's another batch of very overdue takes on some good books (and one not). --- The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion This was charming, witty, and had plenty of heart -- even without the romance, which just ...

This book!! This book had me smiling all the way through. Loved it!! The best part was that I picked it to read for my own pure enjoyment, without a review being necessary. Perfect! Going on my All-Time-Fave shelf. Read an excerpt for The Rosie Effect and I can't wait to read the actual sequel. A re...
